The gold futures contract gained 1.35% on Friday, as it broke above its recent local high of around $1,812 following a dovish speech from the Fed Chair Jerome Powell at the Jackson Hole Symposium. On Wednesday and Thursday the market retreated below $1,800 level again, but it was just a short-term weakness. Gold is now trading along $1,820 price level. This morning the yellow metal is basically at the Friday’s daily closing price, as we can see on the daily chart (the chart includes today’s intraday data):
Today gold is virtually flat right now, as it is trading below the $1,820 price level. What about the other precious metals? Silver is 0.5% higher, platinum is 0.2% lower and palladium is 1.6% higher. So precious metals’ prices are mixed this morning.
Friday’s important Core PCE Price Index release has been as expected at +0.3% m/m, but the Personal Income/ Personal Spending releases have been mixed. Today we will get the Pending Home Sales release at 10:00 a.m. The markets will be waiting for Friday’s monthly jobs data announcement. And tomorrow we will have the CB Consumer Confidence release.
